This year Eastbourne School of English is celebrating its 80th anniversary. The school was established in the summer of 1936 by Miss Frances Batchelor who had the dream of encouraging young people to learn the English language and to build friendships between the nations of the world. It became a not-for-profit educational charity in 1966 to ensure that her dream could continue, and to be a champion for the highest standards in English language teaching. Today Eastbourne School of English is still one of the leading schools in the UK.
We will we marking this special birthday in a variety of ways throughout the year with parties, special events, scholarships and prizes.
80 weeks of scholarships
The main focus of our celebrations will be in keeping with our charitable mission - we will be offering 80 weeks of scholarships* to enable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue the dream of learning the English language and building lasting friendships with students from other nations. We will be specifically targeting the scholarships to students where it can really make a difference to their future.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
*The scholarships will typically be 2 weeks of tuition and standard homestay accommodation (half-board). We will be releasing more details of scholarship winners later in the year.
